Burglar smashes door, grabs cigarettes

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - A burglar got away with hundreds of dollars worth of cigarettes Friday morning. The door at the Super Shop II on Tripp Street was smashed out around 3 Friday morning.

The manager said the thief swiped about 50 packs of cigarettes from behind the counter. The door is fixed, but the clerks are frustrated.

"It could have been avoided. Why should you go breaking other folks stuff when you have get money to pay for it," said clerk Dorothy Floyd.

If you saw anything around the store this morning, you're asked to call the Americus Police Department.
